Microsoft has released a new update for the Xbox Series X that brings 4K dashboards, a night mode, and a quick settings menu to the console. 

Xbox announced this news in a new Xbox Wire post that details the three main things coming with this update. Before this update, which is now live for all Xbox Series X owners, the console’s dashboard was not truly 4K, but rather, a 1080p resolution upscaled to 4K. The dashboard is now presented in a native 4K resolution, which means that those with 4K TVs or monitors should notice a much sharper image when paging through the Series X dashboard menus. 

“You can experience 4K while browsing the Home, My Games & Apps, Guide, and many other experiences,” the Xbox Wire post reads. “UI elements on the screen, such as game art and buttons, will have increased sharpness and improved text readability.” 

This new update also adds a Night Mode to Series X consoles. This mode adjusts light sources on-screen to help keep dark rooms dark (such as at night) and it also doubles as a more accessible mode for those sensitive to light. You can dim and customize the light coming from your display, the light coming from your controller’s lit Xbox button, and even the power light on the console itself. 

A customizable blue light filter has been added as well, and Xbox says this feature “does not impact performance, screenshots, or game clips.” You can schedule the console’s Night Mode to be activated whenever you want, and it can even be timed with your local sunrise and sunset times. 

To access Night Mode, head to Settings, then Accessibility, and then Night Mode. Alternatively, you can go to Settings, then TV & Display Options, and then Night Mode. 

The final new thing this update adds to Series X consoles is a Quick Settings menu. 

“This allows you to quickly toggle accessibility features without leaving your game or app,” the Xbox Wire post reads. “It’s also a big benefit for families if you share a console with others who have different accessibility needs. You can use quick settings to switch features on or off, depending on who is currently using the console. That means everyone in the family can easily flip the settings to their tailored experience.”
